DIY OCEANOGRAPHY: CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Guest editors Melissa Omand and Emmanuel Boss are seeking contributions to a new Oceanography section called DIY Oceanography, which will be launched in the March 2020 issue. These peer-reviewed articles will include all of the relevant information on a homemade sensor or instrument so that others can build, or build upon, it. The articles will also showcase how this technology was used successfully in the field. Contributions should include a list of the materials and costs, instructions on how to build, and any blueprints and codes (those could be deposited elsewhere). See Oceanography’s Author Guidelines page for detailed information on submission requirements.
